ALMOST EXACTLY A MONTH AGO, we asked in this space why we can’t have a nice, peaceful drug trade.
This was just a few days after a double homicide RCMP told us was related to the drug subculture.
…with a couple of extra epithets thrown in for additional dehumanization.
Now even those who like to dehumanize criminals have good reason to care.
RCMP have reversed course on their initial messaging that the public need not be concerned, as the whole thing was targeted.
Police now say one of the victims, Rex Gill of Penticton, was an unintended target.
